I've come across these forums a number of times looking for information or inspiration on Google. I finally got up the nerve to join and say hello.
I've been building miniatures for a little over a year. It started when my youngest daughter asked for a dollhouse. I never had one as a child but always wanted one so my search began. At the time, I really couldn't afford anything and I hadn't realized how expensive new kits could run. She was only 5 and I also knew, she'd be like a bull in a china shop.
I used a storage shelf that we already had and started converting the cubbies into rooms. I did six rooms in all with upcycled materials and supplies that I already had. From then on, I was hooked. I now build furniture and accessories as a side job and just finished my first dollhouse kit build.
I'm looking forward to learning from you all, getting to know you and sharing projects.
